There are 354 films on the Cahiers Top Lists from 1951, 1955-1968. Assuming one has access, all but fifteen are available in English-friendly copies via commercial releases and back channels. Here's what's MIA:

CIRCULATING W/O ENGLISH SUBS
Cyrano et d’Artagnan (Abel Gance 1963)
Forma Gordeev / Thomas Gordeyev (Mark Donskoy 1959)
Il Terrorista (Gianfranco de Bosio 1963)
La Course de taureaux (Pierre Braunberger 1951)
Le journal d’une femme en blanc (Claude Autant-Lara 1965)
Les Honneurs de la guerre (Jean Dewever 1960)
Sait-on jamais… (Roger Vadim 1957)
Torero / Toro (Carlos Velo 1956)
Un coeur gros comme ca (Francois Reichenbach 1961)
Vacances portugaises (Pierre Kast 1963)

NOT CIRCULATING (?)
L’Amour a la chaine (Claude de Givray 1964)
La Bataille de France (Jean Aurel 1964)
Les Miracles n’ont lieu qu’une fois (Yves Allegret 1951)
Le Rendez-vous de minuit (Roger Leenhardt 1962)
Marie Soleil (Antoine Bourseiller 1966)


If anyone has a line on English-friendly copies of any of the above, please speak up!

I just paid attention to Rozier's list of the best French films since the liberation for Cahiers and thought it was priceless-- no wonder he and Godard got along!

Domino, can you please point me to an English-friendly (subtitled) release of this Renoir?
1959
13 Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe

I see StudioCanal released a DVD on their Classics series, but no I could find no indication if it has English subtitles.
Thank you!

Merci beaucoup, Glowingwabbit!
I already have the other 5 movies from that Optimum box set on DVD or Blu-ray, so not sure if it's worth $40 to pick up Le Déjeuner sur l'herbe. But, leaning on the opinions of forum folk, I found a great review earlier in the forum by ellipsis7 on the Optimum box set here, and Domino listed Déjeuner as #1 on his (her?) Renoir auteur list a few months ago here, where knives had a nice (but mixed) short write-up about it, and Rayon Vert recommended it, and Steven H defended it glowingly in this post. So I will purchase on the strengths of these recommendations. Thank you all!

That's wonderful. Rozier already had a special place in my heart, and now I think I love him even more!
